WASHINGTON — The White House warned Republicans on Monday that failing to raise the $14.29 trillion US debt limit would spark “Armageddon-like” consequences for the slowly recovering US economy.
As a new political showdown looms over the economy following a defused budget row, aides also said President Barack Obama now “regrets” his vote as a senator against raising the debt ceiling in 2006, calling it “a mistake.”
“The consequences … of failure to raise the debt ceiling would be Armageddon-like in terms of the economy,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney.
Congress must raise the US debt limit, or the maximum amount the Treasury is allowed to borrow, by May 16 or see the United States default on interest payments of its debt.
